Somerset Grist Mill is proud to host the 13 year old Skowhegan Farmer's Market on our site starting this weekend. The market will meet every Saturday from 9-1 with live music and special events every week, in addition to the 20 vendors offering all of the best fresh local food from the region.
The children's gardening project is just the next step in a progression of activities undertaken by farmers to make fresh local food available to everyone in the community. As market manager Sarah Smith of Grassland Farm shared: "In order to change our food system, we need to get to a point where one in three people are growing food. Not one in a thousand. If people are concerned with where their food comes from, they should not only support their local farmers but they should simply grow their own food."
